Last night three teenagers died in a crush to get into a St. Patrick’s Night disco at a hotel in my local town, Cookstown, in Co. Tyrone. The three of them, two boys and a girl were 16 and 17 years of age and were all from the neighbouring town of Dungannon. This is a terrible tragedy, especially in a small community, and nearly everyone knows somebody who knows the families. It isn’t often our small town makes the National News bulletins, even during the long years of the troubles here in Northern Ireland, we thankfully managed to keep a low profile, so it came as a shock to learn of this tragedy on BBC TV this morning. A thorough investigation is now underway to find out exactly what caused this disaster, and to prevent such a tragedy being repeated.

Posted by webspider555I’m beginning to wonder whether our government is just incompetent or are all these things happening just to get us in a rage arguing amongst ourselves.
